“The Red Newt Cellars ‘Cream Label’ Gewüztraminer is internally referred to as ‘the every night Gewüztraminer.’ As beautiful as the single vineyard Gewürztraminer we bottle can be, they are opulent and bruising wines with a very loud personality. The Cream Label version is made and blended in such a way that it is lighter, more refreshing, and with more fruit aromas as compared to rose perfume. A friendlier Gewürztraminer.” More at
